( ( ( ALEXIS BHAGAT )) ) )
[ New York City ] --
talk/performance on reel-to-reel machines:
"REGARDING SOUND AS ART"
Alexis Bhagat will investigate the performance of sound-as-art
through an innovative two-hour performance performed on two reel-to-reel
machines. Employing field recordings, interviews of sound artists from
the upcoming _Sound Generation_ book, and
cut-ups of spoken word, lectures, and manipulated audio, Bhagat will enact
a mediated performance of recorded and reproduced sound. Through the manipulation
of the very space, format, and "sound" of a "talk,"
Bhagat will experiment with the practice of the "lecture" format
as it crosses into a sound-art performance unto itself. The core of the
performance will touch upon the "The City of Sound."
With a field-recording sound performance & techno-turntablist
DJ set from tobias c. van Veen.
"The tapes will consist of Bhagat reading his own essays on sound,
mixed in with a variety of sounds, including his own recordings of nature,
commentaries on western music by Harry Partch, snippets of conversations
between Bhagat and Annea Lockwood, Hildegard Westerkamp, Grey Filistine
and tobias c. van Veen, as well as plundered pop-tune loops."
